Update: Madhu closed in 2014
This seems like a pretty standard Indian restaurant, with the buffet during the day and small bar at the rear. It's just a few weeks old and the owner, who has a couple other restaurants in town, is looking to entice more late night crowds into this one by soon extending food availability into the late evening and offering really good prices on drinks ($2 for my gin and tonic).
